flashy-- I like your point. The USA is going no where. This will be a lost decade if we continue down this same road. This road is one of ballooning national debt that sucks money into the wrong direction.
Lets assume that the USA had no debt at all. Just think how much greater this country would be. The most important thing is that great countries should not and cannot go into excessive debt, which we are at today!
It is madness that has to stop. It is killing jobs, GDP, lack of investment, banks are zombies, and so many evils are created by the killer national debt.
We stock investors are screwed too if this keeps going on. How can we expect to make good gains if the govt is holding back corporations with so many regs and taxes and paperwork and wasteful activities.
America can do far, far better than Obama, and it is time for a change and try a new path as Romney told everybody at the debate.
That excessive cost is reimbursement to hospitals and doctors. A lot of good it will do for everybody to have health coverage that no one will accept. As for the bogus jobs report, the action in retail stocks and the bond market tell you all you need to know about it's veracity.
